IBM Maximo for Transportation gives fleet managers and maintenance officers complete asset management capabilities, including data analysis to:
- Manage transportation assets (fleets of trucks, aircraft, and rail locomotives and cars).
- Monitor equipment status, meter change out and history, and serial number changes and warranty recovery.
- Manage life cycle costing, motor pool, labor qualifications, driver logs, and fuel & fluid management.
Projetech’s Maximo as a Service provides significant financial benefits for transportation companies:
- Lowers TCO (total cost of ownership) for IT departments by allowing organizations to consolidate multiple asset management solutions for fleet and facilities management.
- Reduces integration costs and training costs through SOA (service-oriented architecture) and standards-based J2EE (Java 2 Enterprise Edition).
- Decreases costs in Fuel and Meter Integration, Labor Certifications, Maintenance Alerts, Meter History, and Warranty Recovery.
Projetech’s Maximo as a Service addresses transportation asset management regulations:
- SAFETEA-LU (Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act—A Legacy for Users): Provides funding for federal transportation programs.
- FTA (Federal Transit Administration): Issues FTA Circulars, which authorize specific transportation programs
- OMB (Office of Management and Budget): Established guidelines in 2007 that federal agencies, like the FTA, must follow when creating new legislation.
- FAA (Federal Aviation Administration): Governs air transport.
Tube Lines performs maintenance and upgrade services for a significant portion of the London Underground (the Tube). The infrastructure covered is vast, spanning 200 miles of track, 255 trains, 100 stations, and 2,395 bridges. To reverse decades of under investment in the Tube, Tube Lines was responsible for over GBP4.4 billion to improve the Jubilee, Northern, and Piccadilly lines. Tube Lines faced a huge responsibility, and it knew it had to use the assets wisely. When it started the project, information on assets was in disarray, spread over 1500 Microsoft Excel spreadsheets. It implemented IBM Maximo to establish an effective asset management system. As a result, Maximo has given engineers and contractors real time access of up to date asset information. The improved information accuracy enables far more effective proactive maintenance strategies.
